    Embrace the view whenever possible. If you have a lake or mountain in the distance, this obviously is an easier task. In this instance, rather than a simple expanse of lawn down to the shoreline, a mix of shrubs and trees adds depth and height to the vista. Planting beds filled with shrubs farther up in the yard play the same role that walls and stepping stones or walkways would in other settings: They draw the eye toward and edge the approach to the water.
